When one thinks of Florida the orange is certainly one of the first things to cross your mind. They make a great snack, a delicious beverage, and for 16 Art in the Archives participants they are a colorful addition to their art collection. The evening began in the Buster Kenton room with nibbles and libations to get the creative juices flowing.
The evening’s main event was led by local artist, Maggie Ziglar. As Ziglar began her lesson, a hush of concentration fell over the gathered painters. Soon, the blue backgrounds gave way to bright oranges, lush green leaves, and delicate white blossoms.
Art in the Archives is held three times a year and the theme of each painting ties back to our special temporary exhibit. This month’s event featured a Florida treasure, much like Buster Kenton. Osceola County native and cowboy painter, Kenton is the current subject of the special temporary exhibit on display at the Osceola County Welcome Center and History Museum.
December’s Art in the Archives event was a hit, and the Florida Orange was the star of every canvas. The next Art in the Archives will be February 22, 2017 from 5:30pm to 8:00pm. It’s a great time spent with friends and family, and makes the perfect holiday gift for the creative type, or those looking for a fun and unique evening out.
